Corn Bread~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello everyone,

I've checked the recipe board, and I've already done a search on the message boards. Does anyone have a good corn bread recipe that they've tried and is pleased with?? Oh...and I need a corn bread recipe that does NOT use carbquick. I wanted to use it soooo bad. But our cardiologist advised us not to, because it has partially hydrogenated oil in it. The recipe that I found on the recipe board, didn't have any reviews, so I'm wondering how good it is. Does anyone have a corn bread recipe that they've TRIED and liked??

Thank you kindly to anyone who responds.

The new CarbQuik (3# box) has been reformulated for some time now. ZERO added trans fats or hydrogenated oils.

That being said, just sub finely ground almonds (almond 'flour') for the carbquik if you really want to.

Well Islandgirl ((SIGH)), I just got back from Kroger. The carbquick that is sold there, has PARTIALLY HYDRONATED soy bean oil. So much for that.

Hmm ~ Does anyone know what happened to Sherrie's recipe site? Here's a recipe she posted and I remember it was getting very good reviews:

Sherrie’s Buttermilk Corn Bread

***Looks and tastes like the real thing, you won't know the difference, and no soy taste!! And no, I'm not kidding! Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

1 8oz Pkg cream cheese
3 eggs
3 tbsp Splenda
1/3 cup Atkins Bake Mix *see below for making your own
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup Soy Grits (Bob's Red Mills Brand)
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp Bacon Grease melted** see below how to do this
Beat cream cheese with mixer until blended smooth, add the remaining ingredients (see below for bacon grease) and let sit for 5 minutes before using.
Cast Iron Skillet:
Preparing the pan, this is a southern thing, so if you have never done this don't despair...it's easy! Preheat the oven with the cast iron skillet in side for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove to stove top and add 2 tbsp bacon grease, return to oven. Once melted remove the pan and turn to coat the sides of the pan, pour the remaining grease in your batter and mix well.
Pour the batter into greased pan and return to oven, cook until golden brown on top!
If you don't have a cast iron skillet...just grease a 9X 12 pan and pour in mixture, don't forget to add the grease to your batter!
Slice and serve with a big ole pat of butter! This recipe nearly brought tears to my eyes, I'm delighted to share such a winner with everyone!
Makes 10 large Slices @ 3.3 carbs per slice


Faux Atkins Bake Mix
1 cup soy flour
2 cups soy protein isolate
2 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Splenda
Sift together then store and use as you would Dr. A's. It's much cheaper and things come out about the same.

Oh thanks Ladies! S-deb, thanks for the recipe. I'll try that! My mom always makes corn bread in her cast iron skillet. I sure miss it. So now I'll get to eat some again. See...I'm at the point now where I am convinced that there is no reason for getting off the low carb woe. Somebody always comes along and helps me find a low carb alternative. Thanks Wine2. But nope, I haven't tried any of the bake mixes. But...since you say Atkins has a corn bread mix, I'll eventually end up trying it. Thanks Ladies!!!

Blessings,
Compassion

Ok...thanks for the website Lgpars. I will check it out for sure. And Mahyde, I'll try that Atkins Mix too, especially when I'm being lazy or in a hurry.

Hi lgpars ~ That's the address I had too for Sherrie's website... but I cannot find the recipe section any longer, just her horse art work...

I was wondering if she has a new recipe site address? *Ü*

I think that is what they started out with, then they reformulated. I think the 3# box sells much faster. I bought my first # box, for $7! I almost croaked, but wanted to try it. Then when Netrition had their weekly special a few weeks ago, I purchased 3 3# boxes. I like it, but find that I use equal parts carbquik to Jena Marie cake flour and add baking powder to the recipe. In all the things that I have subbed like this, I have had great results.

I must be the only one who didn't care for Sherrie's cornbread. That 1/3 cup of Atkin's bake mix just ruined it for me, soy, soy soy oh soy lol* I just couldn't get past that awful soy taste so my batch went in the trash.

Soy protein isolate doesn't have that horrible soy aftertaste flavor like the soy flour does, so I'll use that sometimes.

I even made the faux bake mix recipe sherrie gave at the bottom of her recipe, because I had heard how bad the Atkin's bake mix was. If I was to make this recipe again, I would replace the 1/3 cup of Atkin's mix with the Atkin's cornbread mix, at least that's not so soy tasteing.

The best cornbread recipe IMO is the carbquik one, the one that you add cheese to. If you can only find the kind of CQ that has transfats then I would order from Netrition and get the 3lb box that doesn't have it. my 2 cents

That must be pretty old stock, that's way too bad...how much do they sell it for? It just might be worth it to go to the Netrition site (they have a VERY low flat shipping rate of 4.95 per order) and get it there. Their stock turns over so fast, they've always got the latest freshest stuff.

Here's the ingredients from the box (I bought 5 of them, actually, since I can't buy the stuff anywhere around here and the shipping's so good) I received a couple of weeks ago from Netrition --
[COLOR=Blue]Ingredients: Carbalose flour (enzyme-enriched wheat, vital wheat gluten, wheat fiber, unbleached patent wheat flour, vegetable fiber, canola oil, salt, emulsifiers, enzymes, ascorbic acid, sucralose, calcium propionate), palm oil, buttermilk powder, baking powder, egg white powder, lecithin, salt, natural and artificial flavors.[/COLOR]

On the bottom of the box is a production/batch number including date of 200501913 indicating this batch is from January of this year and on the front left top is a big blue 'star' with the words "No Sugar! High Fiber! Low Sodium! No Hydrogenated Oils!, High Protein!, No Trans Fats!".

You might want to check out the date of the product in your Kroger store..., and even consider telling your store manager/customer service that the new formulation is want you want and what will sell -- I've been known to do that, tell them what's wanted. Quite often, they simply don't know...

Good luck with your hunt!

The CQ originally only came in a 1# box and there's tons of stock out there already.

Later they started making a 3# box for food service mostly, but everybody wanted the stuff retail too and started buying it. Not long after they started making the 3# box they reformulated (lots of public pressure and requests) to get rid of the small amount of hydrogenated oils.

Hardly anyone buys the 1# box anymore.

In the end, there's lots of old stock in 1# boxes and a little old stock in 3# boxes left out "there" in the buying world.

So they don't actually make a different formulation in the 2 sizes, but the old stock bought by stores (like Kroger's) in whatever size is still in circulation.

The SAME holds for the label issue. Old stock versus new stock, and the new stock when it's produced is PRESUMABLY going to have updated labels, though I'd like to see that stated at the website and by the CQ management team...

Thanks Island Girl. I think I will ask one of the store managers if they could possibly get the 3# box. The price of the 1# box was close to 6 dollars. I can't remember the exact amount. But I know it was more than 5 dollars. Maybe I'll just order the 3# box from Neitron. I just hope that is exactly what they send me. I can not have hydrogenated oils at all.

Blessings,

Compassion

Here's my recipe for corn bread. It uses no soy.

2 cups Carb quick
6 tablespoons corn bran, can substitute corn meal if you don't have corn bran, but it will raise the net carbs.
2 tablespoons polydextrose, keeps all that corn bran from being too dry.
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon liquid splenda
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup carb countdown milk
1/2 cup butter, melted

Mix all ingredients in an 8X8 baking dish.

Bake 400 degree for 20 minutes in un-greased pan. Cut into 9 squares. This could also be made into muffins. I don't know how many you would get, but I think it would be more than 9.

Per Serving: 205 Calories; 18g Fat (66.8% calories from fat); 6g Protein; 14g Carbohydrate; 11g Dietary Fiber; 83mg Cholesterol; 249mg Sodium. Exchanges: 0 Grain(Starch); 0 Lean Meat; 3 Fat

That's funny because I've never tasted any soy in Sherrie's cornbread recipe. Even my picky husband likes it. Be sure you put the bacon grease in it.

That link redirects me to her horse site. Perhaps you have an old version of her site cached? I looked all over the horse site for her recipes and couldn't find them.

I've used KCDuffer's corn bread recipe twice. The first time, I made it as listed - with 2 Tbsp polyD. They were good, but still a bit dry. The second time, I made them with 1/4 C polyD - they were incredible! So moist and yummy!

I contacted Sherrie about her recipe site and she said she is changing her hosting company and will hopefully be back online next month. She said she has to figure out where to put her recipe site. So we haven't lost those good recipes forever.

If you can taste the soy in Sherrie's corn bread, try adding cheddar cheese and bacon bits. My husband (not a low-carber) says it's the best corn bread he's ever had.
